Lomography B&W 100 120 ISO


A look at the only Lomographic Black and White film available. I’ve never thought of the idea to place a black and white film in my camera, go bar hopping and into the night!

When a friend gave me two rolls of Lomography Black and White 120 film I didn’t hesitate a minute and put it in my camera right away.

The film worked at daytime under bright lighting conditions as well as cloudy skies. However, contrasts are lot more intensive under clear sunshine than a cloudy sky.

The film often has a very distinct grain, especially on pictures that were taken by night with the Diana F+ Flash— maybe this effect only comes from the self-development.

All in all, the Lomography Black & White 120 is a nice black and white film, where there is not much that can go wrong. It becomes obvious quite quickly however, that due to the low ISO 100 it should rather be used for bright sunny days with enough light to create high-contrasts, which are streaked with nothing but depth and sharp lines.
